Hello family and friends, this is Aniya Newsome. As you all probably know I attend Duke Ellington High School for the Arts, an amazing arts school in Washington, DC that allows me to not only grow academically but artistically as well. I am in the Theatre Department at my school and I absolutely love it! Theatre gives me the chance to build skills I will need in the real world and allows me to feel empowered. Unfortunately, DCPS does not fund my school enough for us to do all that we can with these arts. But you can help. With your contribution we will be able to see a fantastic Broadway show in New York City. Seeing a big Broadway show is an experience that can never be replicated. Along with that experience, you will be able to help with funding for our productions, amazing master classes, and so much more. My personal goal is $700, but as I always say “go past what you think you can do to truly reach your limits”. Also, don’t forget to come to that March for the Arts Event at my school on October 26, 2019 to support the arts in the community there will be actives and games. I love you so much and thanks for your consideration and continuous support.
TO SUPPORT YOUNG THEATRE ARTISTS ON THE MOVE
CELEBRATE WITH US ON OCTOBER 26 AT OUR ANNUAL
MARCH FOR THE ARTS FESTIVAL
ALL ARE WELCOME!
Georgetown’s history of mystery doesn’t deter counselors from setting up Camp Ellington at the historic Duke Ellington School of the Arts campus. All of the superstitious locals warn against it, but the young counselors pay little heed to the old timers. Campers try to enjoy activities like moon bounces, sack races, camp stories, delicious food and costume contests*, but mysteriously they keep disappearing. “Who will survive and what will be left of them?”
Come join the fun and help solve the mystery at Camp Ellington on Saturday, October 26th from 10-1pm. Guests will participate in an arts festival and March through Georgetown with performances and events from classic horror films. “Be afraid. Be very afraid.” Fun for the whole family! We’re celebrating and “evil loves to party!”
*Come dressed in costume to enter our costume contest! Extra points given to entries dressed as their favorite horror film character.
